SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - Crews are beginning to pave more than 80 streets across South Bend as part of the city’s first phase of its 2023 paving season.

The work is part of the city’s “Rebuilding Our Streets Plan,” which is in its third year. The plan is a multi-year strategy to fix streets that have failed and to determine ways to maintain them in good condition over time.

Paving began Monday on Miami Street from Ireland Road to Calvert Street. Once crews begin work on a street, it will take approximately three to five days to complete paving.

You should expect delays and possible detours while streets are being repaved. Streets will be closed during working hours (7 a.m. to 6 p.m.), and signage will be posted prior to the start of construction so residents and businesses are aware of the upcoming work.

More than 30 streets are expected to be announced later as part of the second phase of work.

“With construction comes new assets, and improved streets for our residents for our community,” said Kara Boyles, city engineer. “I think residents and vehicles need to be aware though that a lot of construction means we’ve got workers out in the right of way.”

The 2023 paving season is expected to wrap up sometime in November. You can follow the city’s progress by clicking here.
